BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices)

Certificate Description

The Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) is a seafood specific certification program that certifies each step in the production chain. Their standards are built on the four pillars of sustainability: food safety, environmental responsibility, social accountability, and animal health and welfare.

Certification is verification that producers are following best practices to deliver farmed seafood safely and responsibly. BAP addresses the four key areas of sustainability—environmental, social, food safety, and animal health & welfare—at each step of the aquaculture production chain.

The certification was created by Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA), an international non-governmental organization dedicated to advocacy, education and leadership in responsible aquaculture.
